Dream Home Canada is truly the ‘Home Sweet Home’ of our two great organizations; Canada Wood and Forestry Innovation Investments, so it makes sense that it receives a special gift this holiday season. Of course, everyone can use a new coat during the winter months but when it comes to putting coats of paint on an office building in early December, there are challenges to overcome. Extra planning was required to ensure that proper preparation was not compromised. Also, to have high-spirited workers makes overcoming those challenges more worthwhile. Both of our technical teams took pride in managing the project, while employing Sciyork Wood Structures to paint two coats of dark walnut acrylic paint (a Canadian product ‘Wood Plus Coating System’), donated by Oriental Gateway Engineering Ltd.

Since the DHC was completed in 2005, it has been showcased to the new emerging Chinese wood frame industry and represents a high quality standard that can only be achieved by using Canadian wood products.
